  • The St Johns Hill Festival Sw11 Embraces The Spirit Of Eurovision
Post Date: 17 May 2024

Hello Europe, this is Clapham Junction calling! On Sunday 12th May, the annual St John’s Hill Festival – organised and sponsored by The Junction BID – embraced all things Eurovision, from the spirit of community and culture, to the wonderful and sometimes wacky.

It was a day packed full of Festival Fun for the whole family, with 30+ pop-up stalls; fantastic street food and drink; arts and crafts; costume characters; live music; and DJs from Riverside Radio who were broadcasting live and interviewing locals and visitors. 

If you couldn't make it down to St John's Hill this year, here's just a taster of what you missed:

Visitors were treated to live music including the incredibly talented singers from Abba Angels, who provided a fitting salute to the original Swedish foursome (winners of The Eurovision Song Contest in Brighton 50 years ago!)
